Ages and ages ago, I found this amazing tutorial for a wire ear wrap. I FINALLY did it!!! I made mine differently, but the concept is the same.

I used two gauges of steel lockwire that just happened to be hanging around (the smaller gauge was used to wrap the danglies). The feathers and fur were found in the grassy alley behind my house. The feathers are from a young robin's adolescent molt, and the fur is from a neighbour's dog who is a sharpei-cross. I haven't figured out what to hang from the last S link in front, though.

It's already beautiful like it is. Maybe you can had something natural, small and colorful like a stone.

Something representing sea life might be appropriate (since you've got representations of the bird and animal kingdoms). Perhaps a shell, a shark's tooth, or a pearl.

Good luck with your decision,
